this more complicated than it needs to be. we've abandoned some of the principles like expanding medicare. a lot of voters don't like the direction we're going on health care. but if we don't have 60 votes -- i keep hearing the senators say without 60, they can't pass anything. well, it looks like they may not have 60. >> do you know what the speaker's talking about when she says it will happen one way or the other? >> they're talking about the negotiations at the white house, it seems to have a flavor of whistling past the graveyard. i don't think negotiating around the 60 vote senate majority makes a lot of sense, late tonight -- i hope that martha coakley wins, but if we don't, it dramatically changes the environment. look, the republicans have said that if they get this 41st vote, they're going to use it to kill health care. i think we should take them at their word. >> what do you do? do progressive members agree to pass the senate bill? or do they hope to finetune something and use reconciliation? do you punt? what do you do? >> i think we need to take a step back and get the messag

including possibly a more rarified tax on the rich for a medicare payroll tax applied either to high income earners or unearned income, capital gains. various reports today suggest the final bill and this would be the final, final bill, could go to the congressional budget office as early as this weekend presuming deals are struck on other issues including immigration and abortion and whether insurance plans are offered and regulated on a state level or national one not to mention a new hitch the inclusion today of senator joe lieberman in these talks as well, roll call.com reporting talks were to resume tonight at 9:00 p.m. and lieberman is now in the mix because he is again seen as a lynch pin for passage. addressing house democrats tonight the president sought to reassure them not only that he knows what a bruising fight health care reform has been for them but promising he will campaign across the country to defend it and said he would love to fight republicans on whether to roll back the reforms the democrats hope to enact. >> i know everybody in the media is all in a tizzy. oh, what i

health care without shifting medicaid costs to the states and without cutting medicare, and without raising your taxes. we will do that by implementing common sense reforms like letting families and businesses buy health care insurance policies across state lines and ending frivolous lawsuits against doctors and hospitals that drive up the cost of your health care. and our solutions aren't thousand page bills that no one has fully read after being crafted behind closed doors and special interests. in fact, many of our proposals are available online. solutions.gop.gov. we welcome your ideas on facebook and twitter. all americans agree that this nation must become more energy independent and secure. we are blessed here in america with vast natural resources and weigh must use them all. advances in technology can unleash more natural gas, nuclear, wind, coal, alternative energy that will lower your utility bills. here in virginia, we have the opportunity to become the first state on the east coast to explore for and produce oil and natural gas offshore. but this administration's polici

, gang. because the republic needs to be restored. he's rooting for a collapse of medicare and social security. i assume the sponsors are not selling enough gold. remember what that one advertiser said -- you pay anybody on any network, and they say what you pay them to say. they're bought and sold. >>> our winner, karl rove who suggested president obama did not address the nation quickly enough. ty don't understand why keeping the president off the stage and then not have him explain it for four days is supposed to reassure us. well, it was three days, first of all, but on december 22nd, 2001, the shoe bomber tried to blow up an airliner, president bush was kept off the stage until december 28th, and even then he only mentioned reid in passing at a news conference from his vacation home. no, indeed mr. rove doesn't understand that mr. bush was off the stage on vacation for a third of his presidency. and in this case, he was off the stage for six days. mr. obama was off for only three. it is clear mr. rove does not understand that six is more than three. karl "that's all folks" rove,

childhood education, and the notion that we should freeze that when there may be, for example this medicare subsidy doesn't make sense. let me tell you another place where i'd like to look for some savings. we're currently spending $10 billion a month in iraq, when they have a $79 billion surplus. it seems to me that if we're going to be strong at home as well as strong abroad, we've got to look at bringing that war to a close. >> and in another largely symbolic move, the administration confirming the president will announce a salary freeze tomorrow night for senior white house officials and top political appointees. let's bring in as promises, university of california at berkeley, robert reich, also the author of "supercapitalism" now out in paperback. thanks again for your time, sir. >> good evening, keith. >> as you understand this idea, what is it supposed to achieve and will it achieve that? >> well, i don't know. that's a very very good question. if the economy were at full capacity, if everybody had a job, if we were worried about inflation, maybe then, under those circumstances you

of medicare and social security. i'm guessing his sponsors just are not selling enough gold. just remember what that one from his advertiser merritt, peter epstein has. i pay anybody on any network and they say what you pay them to say. the winner the gold. claiming president obama didn't address the country enough. he said -- ha, it was three days, first of all. but on december it 2nd, 2001, the so-called shoe bomber richard reid tried to blow up an airliner. president bush was kept off the stage until december 28th and then only mentioned reid in passing from a news conference from his vacation home. no, indeed, mr. rove doesn't understand, does he? specifically, that mr. bush was off the stage, on vacation for a third of his presidency and in this case he was off the stage for six days while mr. obama was off for only three. it is clear mr. rove does not understand that six is more than three. karl, that's all for example, rove, today's "worst person in the world."

of the reasons he got rid of medicare buy-in, and threw a tantrum over it, was because the liberals liked it. if that's his operating procedure, you kind of wonder whether anything that the house progressive caucus gets too excited about it, lieberman or nelson are necessarily going to throw a fit over. if that's the case, it's going to be hard. at the same time, it is a little bit of whack-a-mole. it's going to be hard for lieberman or nelson or blanche lincoln or others to throw a fit over every individual items. and that gives me some hope that at least some of those will make it into the final bill. >> the dodd and dorgan retirements, and the headline was dems dropping like flies, there's two of them. only two flies. >> are there any left? >> it's a republican sweep now. everything is 100-nothing, isn't it? serious trouble. the president was just impeached and voted office in the last three minutes. all right. back to the point. the retirements, particularly dorgan, and i touched on this very briefly with craig and with ed schultz, could leadership not have known? ed said this had been i

might have taken a month ago or a couple years ago. remember joe lieberman killed the idea of a medicare buy-in in the health care plan though he had campaigned on that particular measure. they don't seem to be particularly bound by that. second, you know, i'm under the impression that those big banks have a whole lot of money and they might want to inject that money into the political process now thanks to the supreme court ruling and one wonders if members of congress will be paying attention to that. >> and as the first big act of the second year of the obama administration, what is indeed the symbolism of that as he announces he is going to beat up some corporations on the same day the supreme court gives the corporations the right to spend to defeat him politically cash in the amount of infinity? >> there is a symbolism of it and the impact of it and, you know, clearly, whatever you think about the first amendment implications of this decision, it tilts the playing field toward the republicans. i mean, it just does. in that they've been the historic champions of big business and now

national security, medicare, medicaid, and social security will not be affected. but all other discretionary government programs will. like any cash strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don't. and if i have to enforce this discipline by veto i will. >> when the gop scoffed about that taking place next year the president ad-libbed that's how budgeting works. the man who delivered the republican response, the brand-new virginia governor, bob mcdonnell, saying the spending freeze is not big enough and big government itself is too big. >> the president's partial phrase announced today under discretionary spending. the circumstances of our time demand we reconsider and restore the proper limited role of government at every level. >> joining us now, live from capitol hill, david axelrod. senior adviser to the president of the united states. david, good evening. >> keith, how are you doing? >> you characterized this earlier as president versus big banks, big insurers, and big unemployment, and essentially daring the republicans
